  • Pledge to be a ‘Co-op Voter’ and vote Nov. 8


    As President and CEO of Owen Electric Cooperative, I care deeply about the  

    communities we serve and want the very best for every one of our members.

  • Hendrick family thanks everyone for support


     The family of Chris Hendrick would like to express our thanks to the people of Carroll County and beyond for their generous outreach to our son and our family. The expressions of thoughts and offers of prayers have been overwhelming. The response to the Go Fund Me account has been humbling.

  • Historical society seeks new members


    The Port William Historical Society will be hosting an open house/membership drive on Oct. 15, from 1-3 p.m. at the Masterson House on U.S. 42.
